With the 20th century, the environmental problems and economic effects caused by the increase in energy consumption made it necessary to develop suggestions for more efficient usage of energy. A large proportion of the total energy consumed is used for heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting requirements in buildings to provide user comfort. “It is possible to build zero energy buildings with renewable energy” says General Manager of Evcil Group Mustafa Evcil.
Could you tell about yourself a little bit? What is Evcil Solar Energy, what does it do?
Hello, I am Mustafa Evcil, I am the 2nd generation manager of the Evcil Solar Energy Group. Our company continues to produce quality and trust based projects in the energy and electricity sector for 32 years. As Evcil Solar Energy, we are trying to offer solar power plants to our customers in the highest quality and most efficient way at minimum cost. With our technical and administrative staff of more than 100 Evcil Group Companies have reached important positions in national platforms. We continue to grow with firm steps both abroad and domestically.
Energy from the sun is using for heating and lighting buildings, as well as for electricity generation, water heating, commercial and environmental purposes.
What is renewable energy?
Renewable energy is energy that can be obtained from natural resources and can be continuously supplemented by nature. Most of the renewable energy is obtained directly and directly from the sun. Energy from the sun is used for heating and lighting buildings, as well as for electricity generation, water heating, commercial and environmental purposes. Along with solar energy, wind and water energy are also important topics in renewable energy.
Usage of renewable energy is increasing day by day in buildings, especially in green buildings.
How is renewable energy using in the construction industry, what is its importance?
With the unlicensed electricity generation regulation published in the Republic of Turkey Official Journal on May 12, 2019, self-consumption based solar power plants can be installed up to 10 KW in residential buildings and a maximum of 5 MW in commercial enterprises. With the development of technology, we can say that usage of renewable energy is increasing day by day in buildings, especially in green buildings.

What is the role of renewable energy on creating sustainable homes?
With an annual sunbathing capacity of 2640 hours Turkey ranks second among European countries in terms of its potential to generate electricity from solar energy. For this reason, it is possible to provide the energy needed in buildings from solar energy, and construct buildings with zero energy or positive energy. Factors such as the correct use of material selection used in buildings, proper insulation of buildings, and correct selection of heating systems are among the features that increase energy efficiency. In addition, it is seen that renewable energy production with solar energy or wind energy significantly reduces the environmental impact of buildings. For this reason, sustainable houses play a major role in renewable energy production instead of consuming energy.
